[Blog Tour Edition] Spinning Pages (23): Murder Among the Stars/One Shot

Oftentimes, while I'm reading a song will pop into my head because the book makes me think of it; sometimes the reverse happens and a random song will make me think of a book I have readSpinning Pages is a combination of my love for books and music. More often than not, the inspiration for these posts strikes while I have music thumping in my ears while exercising (kind of like how this feature came to be). 

This week on Spinning Pages is a special edition version. What's so special about it, well, this week's book and post is part of the blog tour for Murder Among the Stars by Laura L. Sullivan and Adam Shankman. 

Every single time that I thought I had the perfect song for this book, well, another one would come along and find itself more suitable than the last. After running through five, or so,  different songs that made think of certain aspects of the book, I have finally settled on the one.  

One Shot by B.A.P-
There’s only one chance as you walk on this dark path
Shine the light like Martin Luther King
Get your mind out fo’ the gutter
It’s too early for failure, you’re still young
One shot, one chance
There’s no second chance, don’t lose it, get ready now
Hell yeh, challenge yourself,
Spread your small self out, just do it

One shot!
Are you gonna give in?
Are you gonna be caught by the surrounding traps?
Only one shot!
Don’t run away,
Turn around and face your faces
After reading Murder Among the Stars, there were a few characters that I wanted to slap because they were playing a dangerous game in order to advance their careers. That aside, I chose B.A.P's One Shot (which happens to an absolute favorite of mine) because it made me think of the competition that Lulu and the girls were going through for their big shot at stardom.

I especially like this song for Lulu herself. There were times when she wanted to walk away from it all, especially when things were particularly dangerous, but she could never just give up. 

You can see my full thoughts on Adam Shankman and Laura L. Sullivan's Murder Among the Stars by checking out my review.

You also have a chance to listen to the entire song of B.A.P's One Shot, as well as watching the dance version of the video. If you're really curious, there's also a dramatic version, as well.

  1. Unfortunately I couldn't watch the video and my audio isn't working for youTube either (these people can move and I love the clothing!), but the lyrics are encouraging and supportive and if this is what this character needs because all seems hopeless (I don't have a clue how you'd get out of a murder accusation like this) then the pairing is perfect. I can't wait to get to know these characters and find out what happens! dhammelef(at)yahoo(dot)com @dhammelef
